When you think of the U.A.E., you envision ultra luxury, dripping opulence and over the top extravagance beyond anything you’ve experienced. Maybe this hotel was once that in some earlier decade, but it is incredibly past date and very underwhelming.

As per my previous review for the intercon without the staining of carpets. Special thanks to Nazmul for looking after our room. Phiona at breakfast and David at reception. Great staff in all areas of hotel. Did not mention good open position of hotel which is not surrounded by other tall buildings.
